belong to RTL,
more’s the pity
: Back when AWZ canon was awesomely layered and generally consistent, there was a wealth of intriguing backstory to explore, including two things that have always nagged at me insistently:
1) Roman has admitted to having been genuinely in love three times (ep356
). With Marc and Deniz taking the first and third spot, I’ve always wondered about No. 2 (no, bloody Andrew doesn't count :p).
2) The events unfolding between Jenny and Lars when they first met, and Roman’s extreme insistence that the Steinkamps not hire Lars in the late 500s. Details were required.
Also, those who have watched the early AWZ eps might recognise a certain stunt that Jenny pulled on Diana once. I liked the idea that she might’ve learned it from Roman.
